“It’s time to get ill…”
Hip hop lost another great one yesterday. Adam Yauch aka MCA lost his battle to cancer and passed away at the age of 47. The Beastie Boys, which MCA was a member of played, a big role in my introduction to hip hop. Their debut album, “Licensed to Ill” was one of the very first hip hop albums I bought…ON CASSETTE TAPE! I still remember buying it(it was a bootleg version because I was living in the Philippines at the time) and hearing “Paul Revere”. I kept rewinding it on my walkman and trying to learn the lyrics to the song. I think it was the very first hip hop song that I knew the lyrics to. Till this day, I still know the lyrics to that song.
RIP ADAM “MCA” YAUCH.
